Early-career innovators in herbarium-enabled research and future-proofing for the next waves of inventiveness.

This Society of Herbarium Curators-organized event, co-sponsored by iDigBio, will provide a venue for eight current and recent NSF Postdoctoral Fellows to present their herbarium-enabled research and provide fresh opinions on how collections can position themselves and the specimens and data that they curate to produce maximum research relevance in the next waves of innovation.  These eight participants will present on a range of collections-enabled research topics, including such topics as Plant Invasions, Plant Responses to Extreme Events, Sand-Entrapment by Plants, Plant Extinctions on Islands, Evolution of Floral Scent, Herbarium Genomics, Parasitic Plants, and Tropical Tree Diversity.  The 25-minute research talks will be interspersed with whole-group discussions of ideas raised by the speakers. The event will begin at 7:30, with a break mid-morning and a lunch at noon; the event will end at 1:00.
